I will be in Maui for four days next week and want to do a bike run down Haleakala.
I am traveling with a friend who doesn't ride. We will have a rental car so there are a couple ways to do this. I would like to hear the opinions of folks who have done this or similar things. How would you do the trip?
1. We could rent a bike, drive up the mountain and he could drive down while I ride.
2. I could go on a guided trip myself - they pick you up at the hotel and provide everything.
3. same as #2 but buddy goes along and rides down in the shuttle van - for the same price I pay to ride. (subject, of course to him being into this.)
